Alan Beyer, MD
Dr. Beyer began is orthopedic career treating athletes at the Kerlan-Jobe Clinic in Los Angeles during his Sports Medicine Fellowship. He has taken his training in sports medicine to provide the same quality of high level care to the recreational athlete, or what he likes to call the “weekend warrior,” as he does for the professional athlete. Over the years, Dr. Beyer’s practice has evolved as his patients have. The patients that had been seeing him over the years for all their acute knee issues were beginning to suffer from arthritis and coming back to Dr. Beyer requesting that he perform their knee replacements. Along with treating acute knee problems and performing arthroscopic knee surgery, Dr. Beyer now performs over 150 knee replacements annually and is involved in early intervention in the treatment of osteoarthritis of the knee. As a founding partner of Hoag Orthopedic Institute, Dr. Beyer also works with some of the top physicians in the Orange County area and is well-respected by his peers.
If Dr. Beyer's name sounds familiar, it might be because he is the host of Doctor in the Dugout on AM830, home of Angels Baseball, for the last three years. It's a one hour show on Saturdays featuring Dr. Beyer’s distinctive wit and keen insights on sports, as well as providing an entertaining twist on sports medicine-related topics and current injury reports, and features special guests and more.
